What do you mean you don’t respond well to criticism Carl?
What! Are you saying I don’t communicate clearly enough?
No, no. I was just trying to expand the conversation.
So you’re saying I’m boring or stupid?
No! I was just trying to start a dialogue.
So you can’t accept my statement at face value? Are you saying I’m not providing enough information to keep your interest?
Not at all. I just wanted to get more information.
So you ARE saying I’m boring! Well, I’m so, so sorry I’m not interesting enough to keep your attention…. Bigot.
I’m not a bigot!
So now you’re saying I’M a bigot?
NO! Not at all. Please don’t get upset.
Well. It’s a bit late for that. I told you I don’t take criticism well…
